Hwolshe Community in Jos South LGA, Plateau State has been thrown into mourning following the alleged killing of a promising 20 year old undergraduate of the University of Jos, Mr. Rinji Peter Bala popularly known as ‘Bobo’ by suspected men of Sector 1 Zaria Road Jos, Plateau State.
Late Rinji Peter and his 6 Friends were said to be walking in their community around 6:30-7:00pm on Tuesday 12th May, 2020 when they were arrested by the vigilante/neighbourhood watch in the area who handed them over to the Soldiers situated around 8th Street Lounge having mistaken them for suspected criminal elements.
The 7 youths were later transferred to sector 1 of the Operation Safe Haven situated at Zaria Road where they were released when nothing incriminating was found on them only to be allegedly shot at while leaving the premises of the Sector Command after being beaten severely which led to the killing of one according to one of the survivor and witness.
The corpse of the deceased was later found lying dead in the pool of his blood at the gate of the Sector Command by his family Members who went to check the situation.
At the time of filing this report, the case has been reported to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Plateau State Police Command.
Members of the community frowned at the action of the Soldier who allegedly killed Late Rinji describing it as an extra-judicial killing.
